Description

The New-ClusterFaultDomain cmdlet creates a fault domain in the cluster. Additionally, you can specify the relationship between the fault domains when they are created.

Examples

Example 1: Create a cluster fault domain in an existing fault domain

PS C:\> New-ClusterFaultDomain -Type Rack -Name "Rack1" -FaultDomain "Site001"
Name  Type ParentName ChildrenNames
----  ---- ---------- -------------
Rack1 Rack Site1

This command creates a cluster fault domain of type Rack named Rack1 in the existing fault domain named Site001.

Required Parameters

-FaultDomainType

Specifies the type of the fault domain that this cmdlet creates.

The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Unknown
  • Site
  • Rack
  • Chassis
  • Node

Aliases:Type
Parameter Sets:Unknown, Site, Rack, Chassis, Node
Position:Named

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
